The Viento Project

Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC)

  • National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR)
  • NOAA Great Lakes Environmental Research Lab (GLERL)

Overall Objective

To integrate the models, people, communications and computers required to perform a coupled storm-resolving atmospheric and Great Lakes model predictions.

ACTS Experiment Objectives

To use the high data rate channel of the NASA ACTS to:

  • implement and test a collaboration and visualization environment required for distributed site control and evaluation;
  • Configure the optimal computer and modeling procedures required for the distributed coupling of the models; and
  • evaluate the capability of the entire system to make predictions with sufficient timeliness to be able to provide data on hazard warning and avoidance.
